Gospel vs Morality

"The fundamental biblical truth that differentiates the gospel from a morality lesson is the declaration that our works always remain tainted by our humanity. Of themselves our actions can never earn God's blessing or secure his favor (Isa. 64:6; Luke 17:10)."

Chapell, Christ-Centered Preaching, p. 294.

Thank the Lord that we can't earn His favor, otherwise, none of us would experience Him. None of us is worthy, only by His grace!
